Week 5 – The 52 Week Illustration Challenge


I’m still working on the illustration challenge on Facebook.

Week 5 was peacock and it sounded so simple. I thought I would have fun with lots of bold colours and draw lots of feathers but the reality is that when I sat at my desk I came up with nothing. A poorly son may have zapped some of my energy. Desperate not to fall behind I decided that I would have a play with my watercolours and try to paint some feathers.

This is attempt 5! Still not happy with it but it’s something and I don’t feel as if I have totally let myself down by giving up for this week.

I splashed around some gold paint and let the colours run a little. Maybe I should have carried on trying as this was definitely an improvement on the first feather but the new week starts on a Wednesday for the challenge and I want to actually have half a chance at keeping up this week.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. A lovely feather! I really like the spots of colour. You have no idea how many times I have tried and failed miserably to do even this! You are way better than you let yourself think you are!
